the direction. it is either the san francisco is exempt or that there are municipalities but have a robust program are exempt, but the preference is the and we have san francisco exempt from this state legislation because we are a unique urban environment that does not exist anywhere else in the state, so that is something offices are actively working on, and oak overview -- a quick overview of what is happening with the retreat, we will be getting agendas and some packet materials of this wednesday and subsequent information will be following through e-mail up until the monday before hand, so

3:11 am
it was almost standing room only, and we have an assemblyman and supervisor david shula -- david shulchu, and it was very informative. prior to this workshop, i was not too clear on the difference between the benefit corporation, but it is pretty clear the differences between them, and there were small-business owners to talk about how they benefit, so that is one thing, and i also attended a press conference to allow them to invest in the neighborhood strategy work crew. good -- work group. this is item number 10, to
3:12 am
invest in a neighborhood initiative for commercial corridors, so there was a very good reading, and i was off to work on the work group. our first meeting was going to be at 11:00, so i was hoping we'd get them to come to our retreat. i also attended a meeting with the fda advocacy group as well as with the fda and the oriental food association, and as mentioned by the public affairs specialist, there is going to be a lot of new food safety laws coming out, so it is important for us through informs small-
3:13 am
business owners, and especially the group that imports food from outside of the country, and some of the members of this association mentioned there are so many new laws coming out, it would be important for them to be informed, so one of the ways i suggested is for the fda to send information to us, and we can send it out now along with our newsletter so people can be informed of what is coming up, and all they have to do is give us a paragraph in with a link to the new law. >> thank you, commissioner o'riley. commissioner dwight: i just want to report i exchanged a few emails. i was there and chatted about
3:14 am
dthe b corps thing. it took awhile to tease out some opportunities that major real impact on him, because he said he was not really enthused about closing the gap, and the more he had to think about it the more it made sense, and it appears they are recommending in it is reduced from 8% to 4%. it is always nice to know that our discussions appear to have some impact. commissioner dooley: i attended a meeting of the small independent pet store owners, and i invited someone to meet with them, and that was very excited for those members to
3:15 am
realize there are groups supporting small business issues, and it was well- received. the pet stores are becoming new members, so i think it was a good hook croup. commissioner dwight: that reminds me, i went to the meeting at petrero hills, and there were not a lot of people there, but i was there, and the owner of sports baseman, who is very involved, and i learned they are not formally organized, and i wondered if it could be organized in the same way because and made available funding options, so i am going to try to help the organization get organized whatever is the
3:16 am
right way, but we are meeting this friday to talk about whether there is an opportunity to be set up in a way that could provide other funding methods, because they have really struggled to have any staff, and retail isthmus a major regional retail is a major employer -- and retail is a major employer, and if they could organize themselves not as a typical merchant association, but as an economic development force, that would be fantastic, so we will see. they were excited to have some interesting. good >> any other commissioner reports? next item. >> item 13, the general public

>> good morning and welcome to this groundbreaking event for our new home at pac 12 studious. i am the president of pac 12 enterprises. we are thrilled to get this construction project rolling. pac 12 enterprises is a subsidiary of pac 12 conference and is home to aover 1200 employees. we will be launching one national television network, six regional television networks, and an additional network. as we have announced previously, we have distribution agreements with four of the most powerful
3:24 am
cable companies in the cable industry. including comcast, time warner, cox, and brighthouse. if you live in the bay area, we will be part of your basic cable package with comcast. i would like to acknowledge and thank our new neighbor, the leader of comcast sportsnet. for his help in this process. when you live in a neighborhood, some neighbors swap eggs for making cookies. we will be swapping television cameras with ted's group. as part of our programming mix, we will televised 850 live sporting events across our 12 campuses each year. that does not include hundreds more that we will eventually strain on our digital network. our event mix will include 34 football games, over 125 men's
3:25 am
basketball games, over 40 women's basketball games, and another 650 olympic sports events which our conference dominates on an annual basis. in fact, the pac 12 has won several competitive championships. what is most gratifying of all, our dynamic student athletes in all sports will be given the increased national exposure they so richly deserved. speaking of athletes, we have quite a list of former pac 12 star athletes and coaches and i will introduce them in a moment. first, we would not be standing here today if it was not for the support of mayor ed lee. aside from the vision he has for bringing technology and entertainment companies to san francisco, it does not hurt that he has a law degree from cal, so
3:26 am
he is a pac 12 guy. it is my pleasure to introduce mayor ed lee. [applause] >> good morning, everyone. this is exciting. the most exciting thing is that san francisco is doing all the right things to signal that we want to make sure people know though role of technology is our future. it is a big part of our present in terms of business, but the way that we do and think. so when gary and larry met with me a few months ago, we talked about the need for speed. when you look at all these athletes here, they move in their own sports with a great indeliberate speed. i wanted to show them as much as to gary and larry we could move with speed as well to complement
3:27 am
the kind of athleticism our stars are representing. san francisco has been very fortunate. we have had this past year the cal bears play at at&t part. we have had the higfight hunger bowl. we want to make sure that that content of these athletes gets distributed as widely as possible and that is why when i heard the interest of the pac 12 to locate their media center here, we jumped on it. with all the innovative we have here, it would be a very short time that that media distribution could be blended with all the thousands of possible applications to get the content out into every possible mode and for our athletes present in the -- and in the future, it would be great for them.
3:28 am
they could be viewed at people at their comfort but at their most exciting than is possible. we're here not only to signal our support. we know that this will be over 125 jobs by the end of the year. they told us that if the city is interested, we have got to start, they have to be able to broadcast by august. we went into that speed mode, that final two-minute drill to make sure we're able to get this thing started right away. we are excited here. this media center is all about that land. -- blend. we can distinguish here and what would have happened if it was the los angeles region and we're happy they chose here because this is our future. i believe it is the future of sports content delivery throughout the west coast and the world. we're glad to make sure they're not only west coast distribution, we think with your
3:29 am
media center, it will be worldwide distribution. that is where we want to be. we want to make sure the media center has a worldwide ability and to match up the talent we have here. thank you. i am so happy to start drilling holes and building new walls. congratulations to all of us working together. larry as well and to all the athletes here. i may be the shortest guy here but i move pretty fast, too. thank you.
